Some retired senior military officers have warned against the postponement of the February general elections to avoid military takeover.
They also warned that the postponement might lead to anarchy in the country.
Tenseven: The worst civilian administration is better than any military government.
Keu4Sucess: I think it is not right to say the Jonathan-led government has no reason for contemplating postponement. This is the assertion of the former Minister for Police Affairs, Brig. Gen. David Jemibewon (retd).
All wise and observant Nigerians know the basis for the call. The cause is the greed and hunger to remain in power by whatever means. What do we think could have caused the call for postponement if not to take care of some persons’ interests ahead of the elections?
David: CAN is not calling for the postponement of the election but Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor is demanding that. He did not say it was the opinion of Christians in Nigeria. It is just the same thing as when GEJ was interviewed by CNN and he said every Nigerian knows that power has improved and that he has performed well. We all know his statements were his opinion and not of all Nigerians.
Dawari: What indication do you have that GEJ will lose his re-election bid? Remember the case of Obama & Romney where the latter lost. Romney had before the election hired a fire-crackering company at a cost of $25,000,000 for his anticipated victory. For me, I have not seen any indication that GEJ will lose. Maybe those who hate him are dreaming of that. That may just be an imagination.
Fatai: Those who are suggesting postponement have not said anything wrong. However, instead of postponing the election because PVCs are not ready, the government should declare a work-free day to enable people to collect their PVCs. If INEC is sincere, it should allow people to use their temporary cards to vote.
